Tour Scotland Video Bass Rock From Earlsferry East Neuk Of Fife

Tour Scotland video of the Bass Rock from a long distance away on the coast of Elie and Earlsferry, East Neuk of Fife, Scotland. The Bass Rock is situated in the Firth of Forth, two miles east of North Berwick and one mile off the mainland there. It was used as a prison during Covenanters. The Bass Rock is the closest sea bird sanctuary to the mainland and was the first to be studied by ornithologists during the 19th century, when they gave the Gannet the scientific name Sula Bassana, incorporating the name of this rocky stack. This colony is the largest on the east coast of Britain and holds approximately 10% of the world population of North Atlantic Gannets.
